12 Should I Play The Lottery?

Today I met my dear friend Julie, her Mama and husband for a seafood lunch.  It turned out to be a gorgeous North Florida day, high of 66 degrees, bright and sunny... so we decided to sit outside to gaze at the boat traffic as we ate.

With the breeze it was a little chilly so we lowered the umbrella for a taste of sunshine. 

The waitress delivered our food, my steaming shrimp basket, fries and hush puppy was not the healthiest choice... but it was YUMMY!

Someone else thought it wasn't the best choice for me either...because after eating four shrimp I heard a plop and felt something splash in my face and hair....

No...please tell me a seagull has not just pooped in my shrimp basket!

Turns out it had "done its business" on the table and just splashed on my food, in my hair and on my clothes.


The waitress was a doll...she asked if I wanted them to make another basket...
I declined because some how I had lost my appetite.

She brought me a clean, towel moistened with warm water to clean up my hair and clothes.  She also told me it was good luck and I should go play the lottery...

Good Luck Really?

Well I just asked "Google" and apparently it is Good Luck to have a bird poo on you!
(If it's on the Internet it's true right?)

It has to do with the odds of random chance. I read that the chances of being pooped on by a bird are 1 in a billion which is almost the same as winning the lottery.

So statistically if you are able to get bird poop on you, then you should also be able to win the lottery.

Not sure what to think?  What about you?

The one thing that was LUCKY is I saved a BUNCH of calories today!!

Funny Stuff!
All I can say is I'm glad it wasn't this guy... (he came by to visit after the incident!) 

So tell me...Have you been lucky??

Thanks for Reading!

  1. Oh man! I was totally getting very jealous about your outdoor dining until I continued reading! I heard it is good luck, but I think that is something they tell people to make them feel better- kind of luck rain on your wedding day. You should probably play the lottery though just in case!

    1. I think you are right! It was gross and what could people say to make me feel's good luck..It's good luck that I didn't consume all those calories!! ha ha!
      I think I will play just in case...
      Thanks for reading!

  2. Sharon! I can't stop laughing! Only you! Flower water anyone??

    1. It was really funny...more so now that I am removed from the situation and not gagging!
      Only me...only me : )

      Hey...I'm still growing from that flower water!
      Gotta Laugh!!

  3. Hi Sharon. Good luck, I've never heard that one. Did you play the lottery? Stupid bird he could poop after you'd finished eating. I just found your blog over at The Shabby Nest and now I'm a new gfc follower. I see you live in N. FL. I'm in Jax.

    I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.
    Hugs…Tracy @ Cotton Pickin Cute

    P.S. Hope you stop by my blog for a visit. I have a few giveaways going on now.

    1. Hi Tracy! Thanks for stopping by!

      I am going to play the lotto tomorrow just in case!

      Glad to have another Jax reader, I'm here too!

      I'll hop over and follow you back!
      Happy Easter!

  4. Ah how horrible! I would have lost my appetite too. Thanks for linking up!

    1. I know Amy...but now that I am away from the situation I giggle every time I think about it!
      Only Me!

  5. I had no idea getting pooed on by a bird had such incredible odds! Going by that figure I should have been lucky enough to win the lottery at least 3 or 4 times in my life, now!

  6. Only you...must be your curly hair!


I'd LOVE to hear from you! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you're thinking!
